Following the events of Crash Course the survivors find themselves trapped on a free-way intersection surrounded by the infected horde. If it seemed like the world was coming to an end before it certainly does now! Volcanic activity has suddenly started occuring on a massive scale resulting in deadly lava flows and destructive earthquakes.

Breaking down on an unstable freeway during an earthquake just adds to the string of bad luck the downtrodden survivors have dealt with! Now they must fight their way off the freeway. But once they reach the ground they'll have to watch out for lava flow.......

Runner up for the Natural Disasters contest.

Its a harsh but fair review fiery, what i can say is this is the next l4d2 project that will recieve a revamp, its looking like a 4 map campaign, so do check back.

Alright, I did not mean to be offensive in anyway. It's just there were so many opportunities for improvement that were missed. Though, please send me a message if you have any new maps I can try out. I understand my reviews are harsh and apologize for any hard feelings but I really like to get straight to the point with someone. Good Luck on future maps, I wish to see more from you :)

Pros:

-Great introduction to the campaign once started
-Very surprising sequences
-Cool Earthquakes which cause dynamic changes to the map
-Nice helicopter support
-Looting Ability
-Awesome map in co-op mode

Cons:

- Zombie spawning can be unbalanced at some parts
- You must restart from VERY BEGINNING if you die. I wish you split the map into parts.
-Experienced a few bugs and confusion
-The unexpected traps were not necessary and made me start at the beginning again!
- Bots die very easily in solo

Conclusion:

I'll be honest here. I did not really like this map at all. I mean the idea is cool and all but first of all, the entire map is just highways with traps and looting. It was exciting and cool, especially with all the traps and surprising scenarios but starting at the very beginning was such a bother that after 2 tries I deleted the map (you cannot blame me, I just made it to the finale area after half-hour and to just die and restart, not tolerable in my case). I hope this map is improved and split into different parts. As of now, I would NOT recommend this map to anybody. Although, great job with everything, I expect better in the future. Good Luck!

Pros:

- lava... woot!
- eathquake
- helicopter help us!
- collapse bridge

Cons:

- death = start all over again
- no tank and finale music
- too much cars (or maybe my computer?)
- once bot fall down to the lava in finale they won't go up
- no ammo in finale

Conclusion:

nice map but to many cons.. maybe some cons are from my game or not, i don't know, but it's still nice

Pros:

Original idea of cards and highway
Lava hazard
Helicopter cover element and looting element
Rock projectiles assaulting in the lot
Easy navigation
Interesting finale location and setup

Cons:

Too dark, even on the highest settings it's hard to see the map
One too many cars, even though it's the theme, all of the cars cause the game to lag EXTREMELY.
Dying in the finale means restarting it all.
The 2 tanks in the finale died on their own because of all the props.
Need larger variety of weapons
Bots alert the horde by themselves

Conclusion:

Overall, the concept and function of a pilot covering you was the highlight of this campaign. In short, less lag and separating maps would of made this a better campaign, and even though cons proceed over the pros, in short I would recommend this to anyone looking for a short quick game.

Comment Appreciated by Developer! Report

Comment Appreciated by Developer! I enjoy this campaign. I just played it again. That is, I played it till I fell off the double planks in the first part of the campaign, like I did in an earlier try to play this through. I already commented about that incident.

What happens is, I fall off the planks, hang there yelling for help and my bots just stand about two feet from me and don't help me up. Yes, it happened again. A charger slammed one of them in the meantime, it took the other bots forever to help whoever was getting pummeled, but still nobody helped me. Oh well.

apologies for not having reslved this already as im abit busy with no more room in hell at the moment and my degree, busy busy busy, but as soon as i get chance i will blitz these problems man, thanks for sticking with it
